Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 106858
SSL_EXPERIMENTAL is not defined in mod_ssl build
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
Description of problem:
In versions 7.1 through 7.3 mod_ssl was compiled with SSL_EXPERIMENTAL defined.
This enabled SSL engine support and the SSLCryptoDevice directive. However, ever
since RedHat switched over to Apache2, this feature hasn't been enabled in
mod_ssl. I have enabled it successfully with a minor change in the httpd
src.rpm. This feature is a must-have for any enterprise which uses SSL hardware
acceleration (which is provided in the RedHat kernel, with the hwcrypto rpm and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.0, 9, Severn(?)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "SSLCryptoDevice builtin" to /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf
2. Restart httpd
Actual Results: Apache refuses to recognize the directive.
Expected Results: The directive should be recognized, as it was in the versions
of mod_ssl included in RedHat 7.1-7.3
I file this as a bug, not as an enhancement, since it is an essential feature
which was included in former builds but isn't any more.
Created attachment 95121 [details]
It defines SSL_EXPERIMENTAL_ENGINE in the src.rpm
Thanks a lot for the report and patch, this is added in 2.0.47-10.
